Psychedelic electronic project That Black, created by Vlad Kreymer, is releasing music in various styles and genres since 2000. Being a radio engineer and a huge enthusiast of vacuum-tube analogue equipment, Vlad created almost every device in his studio with own hands. Another important influence for the sound and creative approach of That Black is Vlad's interest in Indian musical culture, mostly from a philosophical perspective.
Most of That Black albums in Russia and CIS countries were released by well-known independent electronic label Citadel Records. Another project of Vlad Kreymer, Nebo (dedicated to easy listening) had a whole range of releases on UK labels Cookin' Records (Good Looking Organization) and Koyote Records.
Musical activities of That Black also include creating remixes for various pop-projects from Russia and other countries: Mumiy Troll, t.A.T.u., Zdob şi Zdub, Kino, Moscow Grooves Institute, Bi-2, Smash! and many others.
